Earlier on this week we asked you for your best ideas regarding the next piece of DLC for Battlefield 3. We had some great feedback regarding that post which you can check out again here, but now we want to know what needs to come to Modern Warfare 3 as DLC to make the game even better.
If you are not aware by now, Infinity Ward and Activision have already confirmed that the first piece of Modern Warfare 3 will be available to download on January 24, and according to recent rumors which we told you about here, there’s thought to be five new maps coming in the DLC one of which we already know is going to be titled ‘Park’.
Furthermore, this DLC will be available to Call of Duty Elite subscribers first on Xbox 360, before regular Modern Warfare 3 owners get it. At the moment, there’s no specific dates on when the DLC will be available for normal players, or indeed PS3 or PC owners of the game – we expect one month later though as usual.
Back to the main point though, and Activision has recently confirmed that they are planning to make the DLC for Modern Warfare a lot more ‘varied’, and that releases from now on will be much more frequent as opposed to DLC releases for the likes of Black Ops and MW2 which spanned a few months with each pack. We could now be seeing DLC for Modern Warfare 3 every few weeks, just check out the following statement from Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg, which he made in a recent interview with Wired:
“One of the things that was most appealing when we were researching these ideas with consumers is the idea of breaking up the DLC so that it comes more often and more regularly. We want to provide DLC to people more often and also experiment with more of a variety in the forms of playable content.”
Will this be a good move with fans though? If they are planning to release DLC every few weeks for MW3, we doubt it is going to be new maps every time as that wouldn’t be logical and would take far too much time to develop. A more possible idea is having a certain mission unlock or perhaps a set of objectives similar to the BF3 assignments in which MW3 players will need to complete.
Many feel that Modern Warfare 3 is a disappointing experience this time around as it doesn’t offer much in the way of groundbreaking new content and it’s largely the same experience that players first saw in Modern Warfare 3. After hearing that Infinity Ward are planning to release DLC more frequently for MW3, what ideas do you have on this? Does Modern Warfare 3 need saving?
